one of my favourite, four contrasting players, varying styles, Evans on sop, Watts on alto, Brecker and Turrentine on tenors... great medley of two great tunes with sweet harmonic structure and sweet solos. enjoy !

p.s.

a little side humour, if you ever seen the movie the hangover here is a 'third eye' moment, the drummer here is the double of the doctor in that movie when the guys visit the hospital. :)

Brilliant find :)

I love this if just for Don Grolnick on piano - his passing was pure loss to the world of music.

As for finding these 4 players on the one bill together - wow! I've always liked Ernie Watts, but felt that he sometimes plays too many notes in solos. Stanley Turrentine has always been a big influence in playing style and sound :) Bill Evans, still underated in my opinion, and one of the best soprano players there is. Brecker? On occasion, he also falls into the too many notes for my liking, but not on this :)

Thanks again for posting!

Very tight ensemble work and close harmonies. Respect for the skill levels shown but it seems all head and no heart to my ears. Clever not moving. Maybe it was better live. You never get a true feel through the pooter speakers.

well i can certainly feel the "heart" in all the players here, tho we all see/hear music different.
